ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of 50 year old Greek women who referred to the hospital due to blunt trauma in her right eye. Physical examination through fundoscopic, optical coherence tomography revealed closure of a full thickness traumatic macular holes (TMH). It conclude that glial cell migration and proliferation, caused spontaneous hole closure.

    The article cites a clinical observation on the mechanism of delayed splenic rupture (DSR). Such mechanism is identified as either a subtle splenic lesion that progresses to rupture or an acute rupture missed by compute tomography. It is concluded that some splenic ruptures are truly delayed and...
